David Targan Adjunct Associate Professor of Physics

I continue to serve as Director of Ladd Observatory, a key resource for science education in the community. Science education and outreach are essential to the success of federal grants, which require PIs to demonstrate a commitment to public access to science. I am the Associate Dean for Science Education, and a faculty member in the Department of Physics.
